WHAT IS THE AGE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?"


SPELLING EDITED


WHAT IS THE AGE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?


The World Mission Society Church of God teaches that there are THREE ages, the age of the Father, the age of the Son, and the age of the Holy Spirit.

Now the REASON that they teach that there are THREE ages is that they NEED for there to BE three ages and NOT because the Bible ITSELF teaches us that there are three ages.

The WMSCOG teaches that the age of the Father was the Old Testament, the age of the Son BEGAN with the virgin birth of Jesus and the  NEW Covenant and ENDED when Christ RETURNED in the FLESH in 1948. They believe the teaching of a MAN named Ahnsahnghong, who proclaimed to be the Holy Spirit that has come in the FLESH as being Jesus who they say is the Holy Spirit and who also is the Father. And this man told them that mankind is now in the age of the Holy Spirit where we must believe the teachings taught to the Church of God that is in South Korea that was taught to them by this man saying he is the Christ when he RETURNED in the FLESH teaching them about Mother God.

Now most Christians would think or say, “Where in the Bible does it teach this stuff?” Or “HOW could anyone be deceived with such teaching?”

Well, Satan is the DECEIVER and they deceive even some who have been raised in a Christian church by placing EMPHASIS on the FAMILY just like the Mormons do in the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints. In fact, many of their teachings are very similar to what the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints teaches. After they find those who are interested in having better family relationships they put forth their line of reasoning that since all of mankind is called the CHILDREN of God and we call him our Heavenly Father then does in not sound reasonable that we should also have a Mother. Then they have you read Galatians 4:26.


Galatians 4:26.


“But Jerusalem which IS ABOVE is free, which is the MOTHER OF US ALL.” 


Then they INTERPRET this verse FOR you saying that the Bible teaches us that UP IN Heaven there is a MOTHER of ALL of mankind and she is called Jerusalem.


Then they take you to Revelation 21:2.


“And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a BRIDE adorned for her husband.” 


Then they point out that the Mother of ALL of mankind is also called the BRIDE and then they take you to Revelation 22:17.


Revelation 22:17.


“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will let him take the water of life freely?”



Then they INTERPRET this verse FOR you saying that the Spirit is Father God and the BRIDE is, Mother God, and in this LAST AGE of the Holy Spirit, Father God and Mother God are crying out to all men everywhere saying COME and take of the WATER of LIFE freely.

And they continue to stress that if you want to have eternal life then you MUST believe in BOTH Father God and Mother God. They will say that they ALONE are teaching this truth and you must be baptized in their church with their NEW baptism formula using all three NAMES. In other words, they will say that in the AGE of the Son it was alright to be baptized in the name of Jesus only, but NOW in the age of the Holy Spirit, even Christians who have already been baptized in the name of Jesus must also be baptized in the name of the Father, Jehovah, and in the name of the Son, Jesus, and in the NAME of the Holy Spirit, Christ Ahnsahnghong because now the Holy Spirit has his NAME revealed to us. And then they teach their new converts to tell others that they MUST believe in BOTH Father God and Mother God if they want to receive eternal life.

Here is a quote from their website in their teaching about baptism. It all sounds Biblical until you get to the end of that study.


“In the age of the Son, believers had to be baptized in the name of Jesus. Now, in the age of the Holy Spirit, baptism that is in accordance with the teachings of the Bible must be conducted in the name of the Father, Jehovah, and in the name of the Son, Jesus, and in the name of the Holy Spirit, Christ Ahnsahnghong. This is the baptism that saves.”



So then, according to THEM, and NOT according to the Bible ITSELF they are claiming that this MAN named Ahnsahnghong is the Holy Spirit who has come in the FLESH and that this is a NEW AGE of the Holy Spirit and the ONLY way to receive eternal life is to follow and obey the teachings of this man Christ Ahnsahnghong who claims to be the Holy Spirit. And, by the way, he DIED and was NOT resurrected from the dead like Jesus. So, while Satan may masquerade as an angel of light and his ministers as ministers of light he cannot resurrect the dead and give them eternal life.



For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 

14.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (Or Satan MASQUERADES AS an angel of light)

15.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”



In other words, those of you who are preaching and teaching the doctrines of the World Mission Society Church of God will suffer the SAME END as Satan if you do not repent and come out of that false church.

Please read the study “THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE FATHER!” and “THE DEITY OF JESUS AND THE TRINITY!” to learn what the Bible ITSELF truly teaches in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

For you who are not a part of this church, here is their diagram of the new trinity, according to them, in what they are calling the age of the Holy Spirit.


Baptism in Three Names

Now I myself CRINGED in my spirit when I saw this. And I pray that you do as well. One of my first thoughts was, if it had not been for the FALSE doctrine of the Trinity this man claiming to be the Holy Spirit would have never been able to come up with the man-made idea or theory of THREE AGES. The teaching of the Trinity is their ONLY support for teaching three ages. So Satan uses the same lies and repackages them to sell his lies to another group of Christians who are NOT rooted and grounded in the word of TRUTH.

I realize that some Christians do not believe in ANY dispensations of different ages but any honest Christian will admit that God is dealing with mankind under the NEW Covenant that he once did in the past under the OLD covenant.

So most Christians can at least see that there are two ages where one is in the PAST and one is right now where we as Christians are under the NEW Covenant written in the NEW Testament. And then from what we read in PROPHECY, in the Old Testament and the New Testament, we can see no less than two more ages, the 1000 year reign of Jesus, and the age of eternity which will begin after the final day of judgment at the END of the 1000 year reign of Jesus, when Almighty God the Father will create a NEW heaven and a NEW earth, wherein only the RIGHTEOUS will live for all eternity WITH Almighty God the Father and his Son Jesus in the CITY of our God, the NEW JERUSALEM.

So then, in truth, the TRUE age of the Holy Spirit is from eternity past to eternity future, because as I teach in the study “THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE FATHER!” There is but ONE eternal Spirit. And the ONE TRUE God in whom we serve as Christians IS that ONE ETERNAL Holy Spirit. There is only ONE Holy Spirit. And that ONE Holy ETERNAL Spirit is the ONE TRUE God who has been WORKING from the day he began to create. And he is still yet WORKING having NEVER RESTED a single day and who will not rest UNTIL the SEVENTH 1000 year long DAY of the Lord, which is the 1000 year reign of Jesus that begins at the second coming of Jesus.

And in truth, the age of the SON is in three parts, the days of his FLESH, then all the way through the entire church age to his second coming, and then the world to come in which the Son of Man, Jesus, will rule and reign FOR Yahweh his God and Father for a 1000 years, which is the 1000 year long DAY of Yahweh’s REST, while his SON rules FOR him during the SEVENTH DAY.

We are now presently IN the second part of the age of the Son if that is what YOU want to call it. Jesus must remain in heaven during the age of the church. The Bible itself calls it this present world and TODAY is the day of salvation. Many church denominations call it the church age. And some call it the age of grace. Anyway, whatever you yourself choose to call this age we are living in, at this present time, we are STILL UNDER the NEW Covenant which is written DOWN for us in the NEW Testament of the Holy Bible and ANY teaching that is not found stated as a FACT, with NO interpretation needed, should NEVER be taught as a MUST BE BELIEVED dogmatic doctrine in order to be saved, even if you THINK Jesus himself appeared to you in person teaching you some new doctrine.


Please read 2 Corinthians 11:3,4 and Galatians 1:6-9.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your MINDS should be CORRUPTED from the SIMPLICITY that is IN Christ

4.  For if he that comes preaches ANOTHER Jesus, whom WE have NOT preached, or if you ANOTHER spirit, which ye have NOT received, or ANOTHER gospel, which you have NOT accepted, you might well bear with him.” 


Galatians 1:6-9.


I marvel that you are so soon REMOVED from HIM that called you into the grace of Christ unto ANOTHER gospel: (When one believes ANOTHER gospel other than the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ, they REMOVE themselves for Almighty God himself. They are FALLEN from GRACE.)

7.  Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would PERVERT the gospel of Christ

8.  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach ANY OTHER gospel unto you than that which WE HAVE PREACHED unto you, let him be accursed

9.  As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach ANY OTHER gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed.” 




Why do you think God inspired the apostles of Jesus to WRITE DOWN what they preached and taught? So that we would have a RECORD of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ that we can go to see if what we are being taught is the truth of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Please read the study “WHAT IS THE TRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST?”

Those in churches like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, the World Mission Society Church of God, the Seventh Day Adventist Church and all other seventh day of the week Sabbath keeping churches may argue that they are not teaching ANOTHER gospel but they, in truth, they ARE indeed teaching ANOTHER gospel because they are ADDING to the SIMPLICITY that is in the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ.

So beware of ANY church that CLAIMS that they ALONE are the ONE TRUE church. That is the first RED FLAG to STOP going to that church, get a Bible, pray to the one true God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob asking HIM to show you truth from error, to be so clear to you as the color black is to the color white, then open your Bible and read starting anywhere in the NEW Testament. Stay out of the Old Testament until the Holy Spirit reveals the TRUE Jesus to you.

I have many IN-DEPTH studies taking you step by step on how to be saved all the way through to rooting and grounding you in the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. I present the SOUND Biblical evidence giving you all the opposing views from all sides of the controversial church doctrine and then leave it to YOU to decide for yourself, between YOU and Almighty God.

In other words, it is YOUR ETERNAL LIFE that is on the line and I personally believe that YOU should have a say as to what YOU choose to believe. But I implore you to choose WISELY. Search the SCRIPTURES daily to see if what you are being taught is the truth of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

Now just in case that the introduction of this study may have caused some of my readers to WONDER about the verses that THEY use to TRY and prove that there is a Mother God let us learn the TRUE meaning of those verses. This time instead of giving you ONE side we will read their side again along WITH some SOUND BIBLICAL teaching.

Remember that they first seek out those who are having family troubles or those who want to better their family. At first, it is all about the family. Then after they find those who are interested in having better family relationships, they put forth their line of reasoning that since all of mankind is called the CHILDREN of God and we call him our Heavenly Father then does in not sound reasonable that we should also have a Mother.

Keep in mind that their GOAL is to try and prove to their prospective converts that a Mother God is taught in the Bible.


Then they have you read Galatians 4:26.


“But Jerusalem which IS ABOVE is free, which is the MOTHER OF US ALL.” 


Then they INTERPRET this verse FOR you saying that the Bible teaches us that UP IN Heaven there is a MOTHER of ALL of mankind and she is called Jerusalem.

Now let us see what the Bible ITSELF teaches us who this Jerusalem which is ABOVE really is in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Always begin your study with praying and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the true meaning of any verse that is in question. If someone TELLS you what a verse means I implore you to read the CONTEXT. By context, I mean several verses before the verse in question and several verses after the verse in question. After a while you will be able to discern when the context and subject begins and ends. Sometimes the context extends to chapters before and after the verse in question. Here is the context of Galatians 4:26.


Galatians 4:16-31.


“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? (Any Christian that does NOT agree with what others believe and teach will treat others who are trying to show them the truth as their ENEMY because they sincerely believe, with all their heart, that THEY have the truth and that others are trying to deceive them. But in truth, the only way we can truly know the truth is to study the word of God for OURSELVES and not always be hand feed the word of God by someone else. We must be open to at least HEAR the other side of the controversy. And that is all I am asking my readers and seekers of the truth to do, is to hear the WHOLE matter before they draw any conclusions)

17. They zealously affect you, but NOT well; yea, they would exclude you, that you might affect them. (In other words, they will push what you are trying to show them from the Bible ITSELF away because they fear that you are trying to deceive them. So they will kick you OUT of the church)

18.  But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. (So, HOW do we KNOW when what someone is teaching us is a GOOD thing? By searching the word of truth for OURSELVES asking the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us into all truth. So, heavenly Father, we ask you right now to open our eyes of understanding to teach us who the mother of us all truly is in the LIGHT of your WHOLE word and we ask this in the name of your Son Jesus.)

19.  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, (Paul is agonizing in prayer to birth the true Gospel of Jesus Christ into the believer in Galatia so that the true Jesus will be formed in them again. The reading of the whole book of Galatians reveals to us that the church at Galatia was being Judaized and some desired to keep the Law of Moses to keep all the feast days, the weekly Sabbath and the dietary laws under the OLD Covenant.)

20.  I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you. (Paul is worried that those who he brought to saving faith have now been subverted or deceived to be brought under the Law of Moses, under the OLD covenant, to keep the feast days and the weekly Sabbath days and the dietary laws and having their women wear veils to cover their heads)

21.  Tell me, YOU that (Or you who) desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law? (That those under the law must keep the whole law and there is NO MORE sacrifice under the law for sins)

22.  For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. (So the SUBJECT is about the children of the WOMAN that is the FREE woman)

23.  But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the FREEWOMAN was BY PROMISE. (In other words, the children BORN by the PROMISES in God’s WORD are the children of the WOMAN that is FREE and not the children BORN of the BONDWOMAN. So the subject is about TWO WOMEN who bear children and not every single person has been born of the woman that is FREE.)

24.  Which things are an allegory: for these are the TWO COVENANTS; the one from the mount Sinai, which genders to bondage, which is Agar. 

25.  For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answers to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with HER children. (So then there are TWO MOTHERS that are called Jerusalem. One mother Jerusalem brings BONDAGE and HER children are under the OLD Covenant and as you will soon see the children of mother Jerusalem are under the NEW Covenant)

26.  But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us ALL. (Now their first error of interpretation is they incorrectly interpret the word “ALL” here to mean EVERY single human being ever born and who will yet be born as having ONE mother who is above and therefore she must be a Mother God. But as you have clearly seen from the CONTEXT that there are TWO mothers who are both called Jerusalem. So why the statement “which is ABOVE”? Because that is WHERE all the Old Testament saints are. They are RESTING from all their works up in heaven ABOVE awaiting the resurrection. Read all of Hebrews chapter 11 talking about the saints found faithful in the Old Testament. I will just quote the last two verses of chapter 11 and the first few verses of chapter 12. Hebrews 11:39,40 and Hebrews 2:2,3 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 

40.  God having provided some better thing for us that they WITHOUT us should NOT be made perfect. Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,... 

...Hebrews 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 

3. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.”  So then, the Jerusalem ABOVE which is FREE, is speaking of Jesus and all of the Old Testament saints and all of the believers in Jesus who died and their souls went to heaven to await the resurrection. They are all now FREE, in that they no longer have to fight the good fight of faith, to endure unto the end like we who are alive on the earth. The TRUTH will make us free but we must still fight the good fight of FAITH, holding FAST to our confession of faith unto the end. And those in the WMSCOG have fallen away from grace to embrace ANOTHER gospel that is NOT taught in the New Testament of the Bible.)

27.  For it is written, Rejoice, you barren that bear not; break forth and cry, you that travail not: for the desolate has many more children than SHE which has a husband. (Again we see TWO women having children)

28.  Now WE, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise

29.  But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. (Meaning that the children of Ishmael and Esau persecuted and still yet persecute the children of Isaac and Jacob.)

30.  Nevertheless what says the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. (In other words, those keeping the Law of Moses will NOT inherit eternal life when Jesus returns to set up his kingdom and STOP all WARS. So, as long as there are WARS then you KNOW that the TRUE Jesus has NOT returned)

31.  So then, brethren, WE are not children of the bondwoman, but (WE are the children) of the free.” 


For WE follow and obey the NEW Covenant written in the NEW Testament of the Holy Bible. And if any man ADDS or takes away from what is RECORDED in the New Testament, let him or her know the WARNING written in Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32, Proverbs 30:6, and Revelation 22:18,19. I will only quote Revelation 22:18,19.




“For I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 

19.  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”



I challenge YOU, the readers and seekers of the truth of the whole word of Almighty God, to find ANY verse of scripture that COMMANDS, teaches, or even implies that we must believe in BOTH a Father God AND in a Mother God in order to receive ETERNAL LIFE! Do your own word search of the words ETERNAL LIFE and everlasting life. Do your own word search of the phrase mother god or god the mother. Read and STUDY the Bible for yourselves. There are many BLIND false teachers leading people AWAY from the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ. But for now, let us continue with their line of reasoning to see if it is SOUND Biblical reasoning.


Then they take you to Revelation 21:2.



“And I John saw the holy CITY, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared AS a BRIDE adorned for her husband.” 



You should be able to see by this one verse alone that the BRIDE is NOT some so-called mother God. A bride is NOT YET MARRIED. And if so be there was a so-called mother god then she would NOT be a BRIDE because she would already be the WIFE of Almighty God. The bride in Revelation 12:2 is speaking of the CHURCH.

Let us now read the CONTEXT. When someone TELLS you that a particular verse means this or that make SURE they are teaching you the truth by reading the entire CONTEXT for YOURSELF, ask God to show you the truth.


Please read Revelation 21:1-6.



“And I saw a NEW heaven and a NEW earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 

2.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 

3.  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the TABERNACLE OF God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 

4.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 

5.  And he that sat upon the throne (Which is Almighty God the Father, the creator of all things and the source of all life) said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. (This is speaking of the NEW heaven and the NEW earth that John saw in verse 1 just before John saw the TABERNACLE of God called the holy CITY of God called the New Jerusalem coming DOWN out of heaven to reside on the NEW Earth because the old earth will have passed away at this yet future time.)

6.  And he said unto me, It is done. (I have found this phrase “it is done or it shall be finished” to always be pointing to the coming of Jesus and the rapture of the church before the 1000 year reign of Jesus) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”


First of all, the New Jerusalem is a LITERAL CITY coming down out of heaven which is also called the TABERNACLE of God. But it is also figurative for the SAINTS under the altar waiting as the BRIDE of Jesus Christ.

 

Please read Revelation 15:5,6.



“And after that, I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened

6.  And the seven angels came OUT OF the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.”

So then, we can see that the temple of God, where God sits on a throne, is in the tabernacle of God and there are angels coming out of the temple which to me is speaking of a LITERAL CITY of God called the New Jerusalem that is adorned AS A bride is adorned for her husband. If our words, the LITERAL CITY, called the New Jerusalem is a BEAUTIFUL city that is as BEAUTIFUL AS A bride that is all decked out with adornments FOR her husband. The New Jerusalem is not actually being equated with BEING the bride of Jesus Christ. And even if one were to spiritualize this verse to mean that the New Jerusalem is the BRIDE of Jesus Christ, this still does not prove that the Bride is some Mother God.

I want you to THINK this through for YOURSELF and let us suppose the bride does mean a Mother God who is the Mother of us all, who had sex with Father God as some claim, to bear ALL the spirit children who would become FLESH. Now we know from the Bible itself, as we will see later, that the LAMB which is Jesus will marry this BRIDE at his coming. Now IF SO BE this Bride is Mother God then that means Jesus will be marrying his Father’s WIFE which is SIN and a VILE SIN according to 1 Corinthians 5:1.


1 Corinthians 5:1.



“It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and SUCH fornication as is not so much as NAMED among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.”



So then, if there is a Mother God and she was not married to Father God then THEY were living in SIN. And if a wife of a man were to marry another then she would be an adulterer. The BRIDE is going to marry God’s SON. So this whole theory of the bride being a Mother God is all messed up and is blaspheming Almighty God and his Son Jesus making them both be SINNERS.

Then we see that Almighty God the Father is the one who GIVES the water of life. Now the WMSCOG teaches that the WATER of LIFE means ETERNAL LIFE but what does the Bible ITSELF teach us. The bride of Jesus Christ is NOT the giver of the water of life. Almighty God GAVE that power and authority to his SON Jesus.

First of all, you have to understand that the water of life is NOT eternal life as the WMSCOG misleads their converts to believe. The Bible ITSELF teaches us that the water of life is the Holy Spirit. Before I prove this to you from the Bible ITSELF, let us go ahead and read their next point they make in the line of reasoning that there MUST be a Mother God for there to be children of God because it is impossible for God to have children without having a wife of a Mother God to bear those children?

Then they point out that the Mother of ALL of mankind is also called the BRIDE and then they take you to Revelation 22:17.


Revelation 22:17.



“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will let him take the water of life freely.”


Then they INTERPRET this verse FOR you saying that the Spirit is Father God and the BRIDE IS Mother God and in this LAST AGE of the Holy Spirit BOTH Father God AND Mother God are crying out to all men everywhere saying COME and take of the WATER of LIFE freely.

And they continue to stress that if you want to have eternal life then you MUST believe in BOTH Father God and Mother God.

Let us now see what the Bible ITSELF teaches us by first seeing WHAT the water of life is according to the Bible with NO interpretation needed.


Please read John 4:10-14.


“ Jesus answered and said unto her, IF you KNEW the GIFT of God, and WHO it is that said to you, Give ME to drink; you would have asked OF HIM, and HE would have given you living water

11.  The woman said unto him, Sir, YOU have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then have YOU that living water

12.  Are you greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 

13.  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again: 

14.  But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up UNTO everlasting life.”



So then, from this passage of scripture we clearly see that the ONE giver of living water is Jesus and we also see that the living water is NOT eternal life but rather that the living water will be like a well of water IN the one who receives the living water that will spring up on the inside of him UNTO eternal life.


Now let us read John 7:37,38.


“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto ME, and drink

38.  He that believes on ME, as the SCRIPTURE has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water

39. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” 



In this passage of scripture, we can clearly see that again Jesus is the GIVER of the living water but we also see the Bible INTERPRETING ITSELF to clearly show us that the living water is the Holy Spirit and NOT eternal life. The Holy Spirit does indeed WITNESS to us bearing witness IN us that we are truly saved after we believe but the Holy Spirit does not force eternal life on any of us.

Rather, the Holy Spirit LEADS and guides us UNTO eternal life that Jesus will give to those of us who are found to be the good and faithful servants who follow and obey ONLY the Teaching of Jesus as written down for us in the NEW Testament of the Holy Bible.

Let us read Revelation 22:1-4 which confirms that the water of life is NOT the TREE of life which represent ETERNAL LIFE that Jesus will grant who eats of the tree of life and who will not eat of the tree of life AT his COMING.


Revelation 22:1-4.


“And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb

2.  In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE of life, which bare twelve manners of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were FOR the healing of the NATIONS

           3.  And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall serve him: 

          4.  And they shall see his face, and his name shall be in their foreheads.”



This is a scene that will come to pass DURING the 1000 year reign of Jesus AFTER we, who are Christians NOW in this PRESENT world, receive OUR ETERNAL LIFE at the COMING of Jesus. Without getting to an in-depth study on end-time prophecy, my main point right now is for you to see that the water of life or the living water is the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us UNTO eternal life represented by the TREE of life.

Now let us go back and read Revelation 22:17 to see if the Spirit is Father God and the BRIDE is Mother God as WMSCOG dogmatically demands. OR is the bride of the Lamb the CHURCH that will become the Lamb’s WIFE as we are taught in Revelation 19:7-9.


Revelation 19:7-9.


“Let US be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and HIS WIFE (Or his BRIDE which is about to be MARRIED to the Lamb) has made herself READY. (Now one can INTERPRET or speculate or have a theory of what the phrase “has made herself READY” means but I myself would rather believe what the Bible ITSELF teaches us about making oneself READY to be married to the Lamb.)

8.  And to HER (The BRIDE soon to be wife) was GRANTED that SHE should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen IS the righteousness of SAINTS. ( The pronouns her and she refer to the SAINTS or the CHURCH. The church is the BRIDE of the LAMB, Jesus Christ. So then, AFTER the BRIDE has made herself READY, she is GRANTED to be clothed in fine linen which IS the righteousness of the SAINTS. In other words, the BRIDE of Jesus Christ is the CHURCH, the body of Jesus Christ, the SAINTS who are making themselves ready on the earth in this present age.)

9.  And he said unto me, Write, BLESSED are THEY which are CALLED unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”



You see not everyone who proclaims to be a Christian will be CALLED UP in the rapture of the church to be the BRIDE of Jesus Christ. Right now we are like virgins ESPOUSED or given the promise of marriage to Jesus Christ but first we must make ourselves READY by following and obeying the teaching of Jesus under the NEW Covenant written down for us in the NEW Testament.


Please read 2 Corinthians 11:1-4.


“Would to God you could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. (Or I implore you to hear the WHOLE matter)

2.  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have ESPOUSED you (Speaking of believers in the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ being PROMISED in marriage) to one husband, that I may present you as a CHASTE virgin to Christ. (A chaste virgin is a pure undefiled virgin which is an allegory for a believer REMAINING a true believer in the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ unto the end)

3.  But I FEAR (Or I am worried concerning your FAITH), lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be CORRUPTED from the simplicity that is in Christ

4.  For if he that comes preaches ANOTHER Jesus, whom WE have NOT preached, (And most certainly there is NO mention of the Holy Spirit coming in the FLESH as the so-called christ Ahnsahnghong has claimed that he was the Holy Spirit) or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received, (Speaking of a spirit of Satan, a lying, deceiving spirit) or ANOTHER gospel, which you have NOT accepted, you might well bear with him.”


Or you might fall prey of Satan to believe ANOTHER gospel. This is what Paul is concerned and worried about. So he is WARNING us to NOT believe any other gospel other than what is specifically written down in the NEW Testament of the Holy Bible.

So all I am asking of you, my readers and seekers of the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God, is to read, and reread, and reread again and again the NEW Testament over and over again and again until it alone is written upon your heart and your mind allowing the HOLY SPIRIT to lead and guide you into all truth.

The Bible itself teaches us that after we become truly born again Christians, by believing the SIMPLE Gospel of Jesus Christ, that the ANOINTING of the Holy Spirit comes to DWELL IN us and we have no NEED for any man to teach us. Therefore if ANY man or any church denomination tells you that YOU cannot understand or correctly interpret the scriptures and you NEED THEM to TELL you what the scriptures mean then GET OUT of that church as fast as you can and start reading and studying the Bible for YOURSELF to see if what you are being taught is the truth of the WHOLE word of God.


Please read 1 John 2:24-27.


“Let that, therefore, abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning. If that which you have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. (NO mention of any Mother God which we MUST believe in order to have eternal life found ANYWHERE in the entire Bible. The New Testament teaches us that if we have the SON then we have the Father and if we have BOTH the Father AND the SON then we have ETERNAL LIFE abiding in us, leading and guiding us into all truth that will make us free if we REMAIN in the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ unto the END) 

25.  And this is the promise that he has promised us, even eternal life. 

26.  These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you

27. But the anointing (The indwelling Holy Spirit who is your guide and teacher IN you) which you have received of him abides in you, and you NEED NOT that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him.”


This does not mean that no man CAN teach you but rather if so be any man tells you that you cannot understand the Bible WITHOUT him. That should be a RED FLAG warning you that the ones teaching you have been DECEIVED by the Devil and he or she is now DECEIVING you.

And this is exactly what the World Mission Society Church of God does. They DISCOURAGE anyone from studying ALONE or in small groups without one of THEIR leaders doing the teaching. They do not like to be QUESTIONED about what they teach and will quickly tell their follower that only deception awaits them outside the walls of THEIR church denomination.

WHAT are they AFRAID OF? The TRUTH? Yes, the spirit of the devil FEARS the TRUTH and that is the spirit which they have received.

No church denomination should ever fear open discussion and QUESTIONS regarding the doctrine that they teach for IF they are teaching the TRUTH, then the TRUTH will always come out when a doctrine is exposed to the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.


Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the truth of the WHOLE word of God.

Your brother in Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.
